When I think of November, the thought of “home” immediately comes to mind. Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and getting ready for the winter holidays are all great times to spend with the people you love and take pictures to document the memories. This month’s theme is “Homecoming,” and we encourage you to take pictures of family, friends, food, or anything else you feel fits into this theme. Take a look at the sample photos below for some inspiration for this month’s challenge… NOVEMBER’S PHOTO CHALLENGE THEME: HOMECOMING By Shelly Perry in Portland, OR As the fall weather kicks into full throttle, we’re looking forward to the holidays that bring families together from near and far. So, for this month’s challenge, we want to focus our attention and point our lenses at the theme of “Homecoming.” Images can be more or less anything along the lines of families being in one place around Thanksgiving time, or soldiers coming home, anything that conveys the idea of home … Photos could be of soldiers or an older vet remembering Veterans Day  … Families gathering for Thanksgiving … People traveling and arriving home… Or even greeting the family pet … Remember to use a good, clear description — especially important on those creative shots, — so we all know what’s going on. Use all your technical skills like composition, good lighting, and nailing the focus. Most of all, have fun with it and, of course, enjoy your family and loved ones during this season. Submissions for November’s Challenge are due by 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, November 28. You can submit your photos by clicking on the “Enter to Win” tab on our website. This month’s first-place winner will get a $30 gift certificate to the AWAI E-Bookstore, and the first-, second-, and third-place winners will all be entered into the Hall of Fame to compete for next year’s $2,000 Grand Prize.
